Inner and outer values

Author: Paulo Coelho

Abu Muhammad al-Jurayry used to say: “Religion has treasures that enrich us. There are five inner and five outer treasures we should strive for. All of those who follow the spiritual path must be aware of them.”

“These are the inner treasures: own the ability to be truthful, exercise detachment from our possessions, display humbleness in appearance and strive for both, balance to avoid disagreements and strength to react to them.”

“And these are the outer treasures: discover a supreme Love, be intelligent to see our own flaws, be conscious of everything that happens in life and be grateful for the received blessings.”
